1. Son of Elkanah, a Levite of the Kohathite family (I Chron. vi. 10, 20; II Chron. xxix. 12). 2. Chief of the captains who met David at Ziklag and offered their services to him. It is possible that he is identical with Amasa (I Chron. xii. 19). 3. One of the priests who blew trumpets when David brought back the Ark of the Covenant (I Chron. xv. 24).
